Coming soon: More publicity for @toppot doughnuts? Public Post

A film crew has set up equipment inside the Belltown Top Pot Doughnuts made famous by Obama’s pre-election visit last year.

Passers-by say it’s either The Food Network or The Cooking Channel. I’ve never heard of the latter, but wouldn’t be surprised if it exists.

Not seeing crew members right now…

I noticed that as well this morning. But at 7:45 there was maybe one camera in there at that point — so I didn’t think much of it. Gotta wonder! Cooking Channel is a sister station of the Food Network, so either or would be fantastic. :) #foodie

That’s awesome! My understanding is The Cooking Channel is a new stations owned by the Food Network. They got a lot of attention when the new Seahawk Mr. Golden Tate got in a bit of trouble for breaking in to the one in Belltown when he had a late night craving – he lived upstairs from there at the time I guess. LOL

Ok, now that I’m back at a computer — the Cooking Channel does exist. Thanks, Kristy! And yeah, the Golden Tate episode was hilarious. Top Pot’s had an interesting year.

They have maple bars the size of my forearm. Love them.

When I was in there later this morning, they were setting up a Canon 5D on a really tall camera stand, and generally making the employees nervous.

@Tim, did you get a crack at one of their bacon maple bar prototypes?

The Cooking Channel resembles what Food Network used to be before it became about silly competitions and mediocre cake decorators.
